Default track day app

Hope this is the right place to post. I am booked into Oulton Park on the 10 July for a track day. Last time I was there I got chatting to a guy who had an app on his iPhone that was going his lap times. It was set up to automatically start/stop when crossing the start/finish line. Does anyone know the name of the app and could I use it on a Blackberry or alternatively iPad? My iPad is wifi only so does this make a difference?

Harry's Lap Timer would be one, or Racechrono.

I don't know if an ipad has gps, but if not, you'll need an external gps unit and if you want rpm infmration etc, you'll need a wifi OBD dongle. All the info is here: http://www.gps-laptimer.de/Home.html

thanks very much for this LG. I have seen the vids you have posted on You Tube with speedo and revs etc. Assume that this is what the OBD dongle gives you (I have no idea how this actually works). I will have a read of the thread and come bnack to you if I have any further questions (hope thats okay). Thanks v much.

Be careful as timing is not permitted on most track days as it invalidates indemnity. If you get caught you can and will be thrown off.
